Summer House Maintenance Checklist

General guidelines for keeping your home cool and efficient: 

  • Have a qualified HVAC professional inspect your home’s ducts and cooling equipment. Clean or replace your AC filters every month.
  • Clean out rain gutters and storm drains.
  • Clean and vacuum vents, baseboard heaters and ducts.
  • Seal air leaks in the attic, basement and crawlspace, and also around windows and doors.
  • Check your attic for proper insulation. (The U.S. Department of Energy suggests a value between R-22 and R-49.)
  • Keep shades or curtains drawn on the sunny side of the house, especially during early- and mid-afternoon hours.

Extra steps you can take to save energy: 

  • Install a programmable thermostat, so you can preset temperatures for different times of the day.
  • Replace single-pane windows with newer double-pane models, which help reflect the sun’s rays and reduce energy loss.
  • Apply a reflective coating to your roof. When replacing your roof, use light-colored shingles.
  • Replace incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescents to create a cooler feeling and save lighting costs.
  • Install awnings or plant trees outside your home to create shade.

Kent, this is a very useful checklist for your consumers in the Charlotte, NC real estate market.  Many people forget about the gunk that can be impeding the proper flow of water in your gutters from late fall/winter!
